NFL Updates: News From Around the League, Week 6 Schedule and More
October 13, 2015
Now that Week 5 is all finished up in the NFL, it’s time for us to start looking forward to Week 6, which begins in just a couple of days. In the meantime, there’s plenty to talk about. Let’s check out today’s headlines.
Steelers-Chargers Wrap-Up: Things went pretty slowly for the first three quarters between the Steelers and Chargers on “Monday Night Football,” then the scoreboard lit up in the fourth.
Pittsburgh would find themselves down by three points on their final drive, which would end on a 1-yard Le’Veon Bell rushing score to take the game 24-20. Bell would finish with 111 rush yards in total.
The Steelers move to 3-2 with the victory, while the Chargers fall to 2-3.

The Colts’ Andrew Luck says he was able to practice “without limitations” yesterday, which is good news for Indy fans.
Luck has missed the past two games with a shoulder injury, but the team has been able to win without him. They’ll need him Sunday in a big matchup against the unbeaten Patriots, though.
The feeling around the Seahawks is that RB Marshawn Lynch should be back in action this week. He’s been out due to a hamstring issue.
Thomas Rawls should still see some touches (8-10 or so) to spell Lynch, but it appears we’ll be getting back to normal against Jacksonville this weekend.
Falcons fans (and fantasy owners) will want to keep a close eye on Julio Jones over the next couple of days. His status is up in the air for Thursday, thanks to his balky hamstring.
Jones didn’t practice yesterday and probably won’t today or tomorrow, either. We’d assume he’ll be a game-time call.
In Dez Bryant news, it appears that coach Jason Garrett would like to see his No. 1 receiver get some practice time in before he gets back out on the field.
Bryant and the Cowboys are currently heading into a bye. There’s an outside shot he plays in Week 7, but Week 8 is probably a more likely scenario.
